Ingredients

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix
  • 1 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract, preferably McCormick
  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 Cup Irish cream liqueur
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon green food coloring, prefably McCormick

Directions

Prepare the brownie mix as directed on package, adding in the vanilla. Reserve 1 cup of the batter. Spread the remaining batter in greased 9-inch square baking pan.

Beat the cream cheese, flour, and sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add the Irish cream liqueur, egg, and food coloring; beat until well blended. Pour the batter over the brownie layer in the pan. Drop the reserved 1 cup batter by spoonfuls over the cream cheese layer. Cut through the batter with a knife several times to create a marble effect.

Bake as directed on the brownie package for a 9-inch square baking pan. Cool in the pan on a wire rack, then cut into squares. Serve with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
